Post Baccalaureate Premedical Program

Dominican's Post-Baccalaureate Premedical Program is appropriate both for students who have never before taken introductory natural science courses (career-changers) and for students who need to improve their grades in the science pre-requisites before applying to a professional program (career enhancers).

Admission Requirements

Bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution with a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.00 is requested.

No MCAT scores, please. We do not consider MCAT scores for our program. We expect that students' MCAT scores do not represent their full potential and prefer to have them take the MCAT closer to the opening of the application cycle; after they have had the benefit of further coursework and MCAT studying.

Application Deadline
  • Applications for Fall 2018 are due August 1, 2018; classes begin August 27, 2018

We exclusively use PostBacCAS for our applications. We do not accept applications or supplemental material sent directly to the school.

Applications must be complete including all transcripts by the due date in order to guarantee consideration. If you are accepted, you will be required to hold your place in the class with a non-refundable deposit. Students who are accepted but do not deposit will not be guaranteed a place in the upcoming class.
